Since 1978, the Jeux de Montréal have been at the heart of the development of sports in Montréal by directly reaching out to the next generation, our youth.

The Jeux de Montréal inspire our young people and give them the desire to pursue physical activity. And it is well known that a healthy population is a happy one, one that can take part in the development of its city and that contributes positively to society.

I would like to thank the organizers and volunteers for holding these Games despite the exceptional context of the pandemic. The programming has been adapted with virtual Passports that will certainly be popular.

I congratulate the young people who will challenge themselves during the Jeux de Montréal and I salute the ambassadors, parents and coaches who support and raise awareness among our youth and the entire population about the benefits of an active lifestyle.

Have fun!
